Whether it’s someone in your family, a close friend or work colleague, sending them a little something to help them celebrate their new home is not only good etiquette, it’s sure to put a smile on their face and ensure they feel comfortable settling into their new abode.
No matter if you think they’d enjoy something funny, practical or perhaps a little piece to liven up their space, there truly are so many stylish, thoughtful and beautiful things that you can send.
Here are my top 5 thoughtful, housewarming gift ideas:
Funny tea towels for the kitchen
A simple, practical and very useful gift for someone who has just moved in! Often an item that gets bundled into the bottom of a packing box somewhere – that eventually disappears into the abys – tea towels for the kitchen are a must for every home, so why not treat them to one with a splash of humour?
Etsy, the wonderful online marketplace that it is, has a plethora of both funny and personalised tea towel options for you to choose from!
Personalised “new home” artwork and décor
Anything personalised is a great way to add an additional layer of thoughtfulness and love to your gift. Whether it’s with their names, an image of their new home or the date of their big move, personalisation doesn’t have to cost the world.
Why not treat them to a personalised outdoor doormat to adorn their new front door? There are so many different designs, styles and colours to choose from online. This “Home Sweet Home” doormat from Getting Personal would look perfect outside their new abode and is the perfect welcome home each day.
Brighten up their blank canvas with blooms
No matter if they’re into bright coloured florals or muted green arrangements, sending flowers always goes down a treat. Whether you choose to send a beautiful bouquet of seasonal blooms, letterbox flowers or even just a new vase to put their own in, companies like Bloom & Wild offer it all. Order yours today in time for the big move or get same-day delivery if you live in London!
Ensure it arrives safe and sound
There’s nothing worse than spending time, effort and money picking the perfect gift for your loved one for it to get damaged or broken in the post. If you’re purchasing something and sending it off to them, consider choosing specialist courier services to do the job for you, instead of simply popping it in the regular post.
Whatever you decide to send them, I’m sure they’ll absolutely love it! After all, it will have come from you.
